    C32HG70 i keep an eye out on that one.
    No more crappy asus or acer fake quality panels for me.

    And i really dont care for G-sync.
    I had one before the Asus Asus ROG Swift PG279Q with G-sync to tell u the truth i did not noticed the changings with gsync or vsync on.

    And besides that the screen quality was terrible compared to my full HD from samsung what i have now.
    Be smart folk dont buy Asus or Acer in the future, go for samsung u wont regret it.

    And i take VA panels anytime over IPS or TN panels.
    VA panels got the sharpnes of TN panels, and the colors of the IPS.
    Black is real on VA panels not greasy dike black with yellow glow stuff in it like IPS glow.

    Now if it was only made in a less weird aspect ratio, with the same specs, that would be great.

    EDIT: Didn't see the smaller models, these look great!

    This might be the monitor I am looking for (27" one)

    1. Freesync2/HDR - Check
    2. 144Hz - Check
    3. Low response time - Check
    4. NOT TN - Check
    5. Wide viewing angle - Check
    6. 2560x1440 resolution - Check

    Does anyone know what is the freesync range on this one?

    27' model could be a little expensive depending on your needs but has good specs.

    799 euros for the 32' model is a fair price for those specs.

    Damn it, why can't this have G-Sync... I'm tired of paying $2000 for Asus crap.

    The 32 inch one looks tempting.

    Nice to see that they're matte bezel instead of glossy too. If the 27/32" models are priced right and don't have any nasty issues I'm sure they'll sell easily.

    Edit: Seems they're all curved :\.

    finally the free sync monitors i have been waiting for

    pre ordered the 32" on newegg, though i really would love the big guy, but price is too steep for me at this time

    hoping curve on the 32" will not be a negative

    any thoughts on that would be appreciated

    hmm.. sounds like 2x 24" 1080p monitors glued together. Not very appealing if you ask me.

    Not going to happen anytime soon. ATM, we have to settle for prioritizing which aspects or features we prefer. I've settled on 40" 4k with 21:9 custom res (3840x1620) with 60hz and no freesync/gsync. In a couple years things should start to look better, but for now its a matter of compromises.

    Why? If you watch the movie in its correct aspect ratio, it would just have vertical black bars like watching 4:3 content on a 16:9 monitor.
